The factory, a very specific workplace

The factory is a workplace for many workers in Canada. These jobs within factories have strong peculiarities, which must be taken into account when placing a candidate.  In 2009, the manufacturing industry represented 1,465,994 jobs in Canada. This type of industrial work involves working directly on the production line, requiring no special skills or training. It is thus a non-specialized job, which can then be occupied by a large number of profiles: students, seniors, in addition to a part-time job, and many others.


A short-term and recurring claim

For the factories, the production load or the type of production can change several times during the month, the staffing agency then becomes an important partner. Employees are hired and paid for a short period, or even for the day.

Within the staffing agency, the manufacturing sector can be time consuming due to the number of requests and their recurrence. However, they can use management software such as PRIM and thus compile the candidates’ information: contact details, availability, assessments, CV, etc. These documents facilitate the sending of applications on this type of short-term position.


An investment that requires reactivity and many profiles

For these jobs in factories, the employment agency must be even more efficient, given the number of cases processed each year for each manufacturing company. Thus, it is essential to assign each candidate as quickly as possible, in line with short-term jobs.

Moreover, it is also necessary to have numerous profiles in order to meet this strong and regular demand from the factories. Quality candidates, in this case rigorous and having had good assessments from their previous employer, will be privileged. These repetitive tasks also need to be precise in their gestures and be able to be observant.
